Stopped in here at the recommendation of a fellow at the Killarney Brewing Company. They had almost exclusively irish craft beer on tap and had a very nice bottle list to choose from. The bartender was very good to talk with, and was pretty damn funny. Old time irish pub feel. Highly recommend if in kilkenney. They also have a huge whiskey selection if that is of interest.

Out of all the pubs in Killarney, of which there are many, this is a stand out. You know you’re in a good spot when the locals drink there too. Just as the other reviews mentioned, all the regular fare on tap but the bottle selection isn’t half bad. Nice ambiance, not touristy, nice fireplace and plenty of seating, a place to relax and have a few nice pints.

As a local I come here from time to time. This pub has probably the best choice of beers in Killarney. They’ve added a few local craft on draught since my initial review - Franciscan Well Rebel Red, Killarney Brewing Golden Spear and Scarlet Pimpernel, and Torc’s Wheat Beer. But you can also enjoy the usual macros you see all over Ireland plus Euro additions - Pilsner Urquell, Erdinger, Paulaner. The bottle menu is fairly good - tends towards German/Czech lagers and Belgians but does feature mainstream beers like Fuller’s London Pride and ESB, and Innis and Gunn offerings plus Irish craft beers - O’Hara’s, Dungarvan, Galway Bay On Plunkett St, there’s another entrance in Brewery Lane. While fairly cramped around the bar there is more room at the back plus an upstairs which is opened sometimes. There’s music at weekends - usually rock oriented not trad. So, you can get a bit "blown out of it" if you’re just there to chat and sip beer. Brian (the owner/manager) does a beer tasting once or twice a year (Hallowe’en and Xmas)- and I’ve enjoyed them a lot and learned a lot too

(Visited 11/2012): Courtney’s bar is on Plunkett Street right off Main in downtown Killarney. Street parking is available in the surrounding area and it is in walking distance from nearby hotels.

The interior is dark with worn wood and a fireplace, and has kind of a lodge feel. The curved bar is on the left side. There is a board above the bar listing the available beers.

Courtney’s features their whiskey selection prominently but has a decent beer selection. There are around 12 taps and 50 bottles. The taps are mostly macros like Guinness, Smithwick’s and Carlsberg. However the bottled beers include some craft breweries in Ireland like Dungarvan and other options like Affligem, Duvel and Bishop’s finger.

Service at the bar was friendly.

I don’t think this place offers food.

Overall this is a decent bar to hit in Killarney.
